New Brunswick says it’s bumping up funding for its 13 transition houses in the province.
Families and Children Minister Stephen Horsman says the houses provide a safe haven for women and kids trying to rebuild their lives in the wake of domestic abuse.
The 2018-19 budget for transition homes will increase by 11 per cent to just over $3.3 million.
Horsman says the additional funding means every transition house in New Brunswick can hire a child support worker.
